The Long Distance Ski Championship

SEASON IX EVENT 6

Event: Toblach-Cortina
Date: 2ndFebruary 2019
Distance: 42 km
Location: Südtirol Italy

“After Marcialonga the Season IX tour makes a short move to Toblach-Cortina- only two valleys away. Many skiers, also the recreational, stay in the area between the races in beautiful cross-country ski resorts such as Seiser Alm or Lavaze, to spend an enjoyable training week in Bella Italia.

Toblach-Cortina starts in German speaking Toblach, Südtirol and finish in Italian speaking Cortina of Veneto. It is a 42 km race offering stunning nature through the Dolomites. This year the course is slightly trimmed in order to give a better experience for all the skiers, with the sprint in world cup holding Nordic Arena of Toblach, and the new installed climb at Cimabanche before going downhill to the city centre of Cortina. This event is the final stage of the Visma Alp Trophy competition, combining the four alp events into a tour within the tour. Registrations for recreational skiers open 1st of June!”

Stand by for Season IX Event 7 of 12 being releveled tomorrow at CET 0800!”
